This recipe combines fiber-rich whole rolled oats, creamy nut butter and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acid rich flaxseeds. A delicious hybrid between a cookie and a bar, these bites will satisfy your sweet tooth and your mid-afternoon hunger.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, mix wet ingredients (vanilla extract through maple syrup). Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Drop the dough into 24 even mounds on a parchment paper/silicon mat-lined or greased baking sheet. Or pour into a greased 9-inch by 13-inch baking pan. Lightly press down to flatten (cookies will not flatten much during cooking).
Bake 12-15 minutes, until the cookies are just set in the center.
